- The Biggest Thing Since Creation!
- SEE the Beast that shakes the Earth! LIVE in a world gone mad! WATCH the chaos of a smashed civilization! FLEE from the mightiest fright on the screen! NOTHING so Big as Behemoth!
- Steve Karnes: I feel Admiral, what we're facing is a marine animal of tremendous size and strength. Admiral Summers: Do you mean to believe that a whale could've smashed through steel plates so high above the water line? Steve Karnes: I didn't say a whale. Professor James Bickford: Behemoth? Steve Karnes: That's as good a name as any for now.
Dr. Sampson, the Paleontologist: Oh, it's heading for the Thames. They always made for the freshwater rivers to die. That's where their skeletons have been found - some irrestible instinct to die in the shallows that gave them birth. You know, all my life I hoped this would happen. Ever since childhood I expected it. I knew these creatures were alive somewhere, but I had no proof, scientific proof, and I had to keep it to myself, or my colleagues would have all laughed at me. See, no form of life ceases abruptly, and all those reports of sea serpents - well, what can they be?... The tall, graceful neck of paleosaurus. He can stay underneath the surface for an age, and now he comes to the top.
Steve Karnes: [solemnly] One thing is sure. Something has happened here that isn't in the book. Something came out of the ocean and now has gone back into.
[Jean finds her father badly burned] John: What happened, man? Can - Can you talk to us? Can you hear us, Tom? Jean Trevethan: Dad? Dad? Tom Trevethan: From the sea... burning, like fire! John: What was it? Tom Trevethan: Behemoth!
- The puppet of the behemoth is owned by Dennis Muren.
